Niagara Falls Ribfest!

Located at 4709 Dorchester Rd. at Optimist Park, this Niagara Falls event is literally a rib showdown with several vendors competing to make the best ribs and awards are given at the end of the event for the People’s Choice 2013 winner and then the judge’s pick for best ribs and best sauce. And where there is ribs there is beer. And where there is ribs and beer, there are men. It is the perfect destination for Father’s Day! There are plenty other food vendors besides ribs as well, so if dad is a vegan, no worries! Live entertainment, and an all-new expanded kids area for 2013 are offered as well, so there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Welland Canal Workers’ Historical Exhibit

During the building of the Welland Canal from 1914-1932, 124 men tragically lost their lives while working in difficult and dangerous conditions. When the canal opened in 1932, the Federal Minister of Canals and Railways of the time committed to building a memorial to remember the sacrifice of those men. Unfortunately to this day, that memorial still does not exist.
Malcolm Allen Member of Parliament for Welland is putting a call out to the community for photographs, letters, artifacts or historical pieces relating to the Canal workers. Items loaned to our office by community members/organizations will be displayed in our constituency office at 60 King St for the month of June in order to promote the need for a permanent memorial.
Your assistance or participation in the upcoming “Welland Canal Workers’ Historical Exhibit” is greatly appreciated.
Please feel free to include this information in your organization’s communications, newsletters, or websites.
